Listen To The First Single From Chance The Rapper & The Social Experiments Upcoming Album, Surf
Nov 26, 2014 10:15am | CMJ


Though Chance The Rapper might be the most recognizable name in the Social Experiment, its trumpet player Nico Segal (aka Donnie Trumpet) is the ringleader behind the group’s debut album. Along with Nate Fox and Peter Cottontale, Chance and Segal are set to drop Surf before the year’s end. Sunday Candy is the album’s first official single, and it’s a testament to the members’ ability to work their different aesthetics into one cohesive, slightly offbeat track. The song borrows elements of gospel and Chicago bop, with an optimistic hook from singer Jamila Woods and big, brassy flourishes. Then there’s Chance, smirking through lines like, “Pan-fried, sun-dried, South Side and beat the devil by a landslide.” Stream and download the track below.

SD Circles
Nov 26, 2014 10:12am | StereoGum

Chief Keef associate SD teamed up with Danny Brown on a song last year, and Brown tweeted a link to another great SD track this morning. “Circles,” from SD’s full-length debut Truly Blessed, puts him in a tradition from Biz Markie to 50 Cent to ILoveMakonnen: guys who have an innate sense of melody even though they can’t really sing. (Lest we forget, SD’s pal Keef has a similar gift.) In SD’s case, that means melodiously intoning violent threats, Dej Loaf-style, over forebodingly ornate production at a molasses crawl. It’s an absolute monster, so listen below.

Hear How To Dress Well Cover Iris Dement & Remix FKA twigs In New DJ Mix
Nov 26, 2014 9:59am | StereoGum

Every once in a while How To Dress Well’s Tom Krell likes to upload DJ mixes to Soundcloud. They aren’t mixtapes, at least not in the way that we tend to use the term these days. But they usually include a few new songs and remixes, and they do a nice job covering Krell’s catholic tastes. This morning, Krell has a new one called you and i are the same for us. There’s one new How To Dress Well song on there — a lo-fi cover of Iris Dement’s world-shattering “My Life” — and there are also remixes of tracks from people like FKA twigs, Majical Cloudz, Everything But The Girl, and Sia. Krell also throws in tracks from, among many others, Rich Gang, the Microphones, and Philip Glass. Listen to the 54-minute mix below.

Jian Ghomeshi Arrested for Sexual Assault
Nov 26, 2014 9:58am | Chart Attack

Jian Ghomeshi has been arrested by the Toronto Police Service on four charges of sexual assault and one of "Overcome Resistance - Choking."

Yesterday, the disgraced former CBC host dropped his $55 million smokescreen lawsuit against his former employer, seemingly taking advantage of a nation outraged by the Ferguson verdict to quietly fade into the background. Maybe he just knew what was coming.

According to the release sent out this morning (with the almost comically understated headline "Man charged in Sexual Assault investigation, Faces five charges") the police began their investigation of Ghomeshi on October, 31. Today (Wednesday, November 26), he surrendered to the police. He'll appear in court this afternoon.

Ghomeshi was fired from his job as host of the CBC show Q back in October, setting in motion a domino of allegations (by The Toronto Star's last count, 9 women and one man) claiming he had sexually assaulted them. He first tried to get ahead of the story with a now-infamous open letter on his Facebook page, but as the story unfolded he became quieter and quieter, first claiming he would "meet these allegations directly," before eventually deleting his Facebook and Twitter pages.

Today's court appearance will be his first public appearance since his firing. He was originally set to appear at musician Amanda Palmer's Toronto book launch last night, but she eventually came to her senses and cancelled his presence ...


Herbert Her Face (Stereogum Premiere)
Nov 26, 2014 9:52am | StereoGum

Over the summer, we heard a number of tracks from the prolific British house producer Herbert, who has been releasing a serialized collection of 12″ records over the course of the past year. Herbert’s latest offering is “Her Face,” which will be released on the final four-track installment of the EP, Part 8. Additionally, Herbert announced that he will be releasing a full length in early 2015. “Her Face” is a gentle kind of ruminating house song, its hollow sampled beat unleashes in short bursts like synaptic impulses. Listen below.

Jonny Greenwood debuts new material with London Contemporary Orchestra watch
Nov 26, 2014 9:40am | Cosequence Of Sound

Guitarist Jonny Greenwood is almost as well known for his contemporary classical compositions and film scores as he is for his work in Radiohead (almost). Last month, he once again put that classical side of himself on displayed as he performed with the London Contemporary Orchestra at Manchester’s Albert Hall.

The Boiler Room was there to document the performance, which saw Greenwood debut brand new material alongside selections from his film scores, including the Academy Award-nominated There Will Be BloodThe Master and Norwegian Wood. Greenwood also performed Steve Reich’s “Electric Counterpoint”, which he recently recorded for Nonesuch’s release Radio Rewriter. Replay the full performance below.

In related news, Greenwood is currently in the studio with Radiohead working on a new album.



Future Islands Seasons (BADBADNOTGOOD Remix)
Nov 26, 2014 9:37am | StereoGum

Future Islands’ simmering synthpop anthem “Seasons (Waiting On You)” is one of the defining songs of the past year, and we’ve posted remixes of it from the Hood Internet and DJ Dodger Stadium. The Toronto duo BADBADNOTGOOD, who have an album with Ghostface Killah coming out early next year, have now recorded their own reworking of it. Their version leaves Samuel T. Herring’s vocal completely intact but underpins it with a sort of cinematic jazz, to the extent that it could almost pass for an old James Bond theme. Listen below.

Nov 26, 2014 9:36am | Brooklyn Vegan

Kepi Ghoulie, frontman the now-defunct Lookout!
